Literally just at Adam's backyard, this one is about 30 minutes walk from where we stayed. It offered one of the best mountain views of sunrise I've seen.
Our guide found it weird that we went there while the rest of the town is still in slumber land. The previous night he was suggesting that about 6-7AM would be a great time to go there for sunrise watching. I said "No, we'll wake up at 4AM"
We managed to peel ourselves off the bed when our wake up alarms went off. Quite surprising actually, considering the amount of wine we had the previous night (in my previous post I mentioned how I tasted one of the best fruit wines in Adams).
Half way through the hike I could already see the first rays of the day breaking through the fog layers that blanketed the mountains in the east. We all seemed to not mind the uphill walk, as we are all excited what Lovers' Peak have to offer.
The peak was fog covered when we reached it, but within seconds the fog began to recede and we can already discern the valley below. Then the light show started.
Lovers' Peak layers
The light show was accompanied by the beautiful slow dance of the fog. It changed form, flowed, disappeared, and reappeared in another place. I was like a kid in a candy store, not knowing which direction to shoot first.
Before it was even over I could already see why they call the place "Lovers' Peak". It certainly is one of the most beautiful parts of town. Like a lover, the place have a way of clinging on to you (and I'm not referring to the countless amorseko or crabgrass that I still have to remove from my shorts and shirt).
